Washing Machines: Buying Guide

The washing machine, initially conceived as device for washing soiled laundry, has evolved into an indispensable appliance for both households and industries today. This article discusses some of the important factors that go into choosing one for your home, instead of just considering washing machines on sale.

Current generation washing machines can be broadly categorized into commercial washing machines, home-based washers and industrial washing machines.

Commercial washers
These are built for frequent washes while industrial washing machines are ideal for purposes such as stone washes and heavy duty cleaning. Home-based washers are ideal for medium use and come in a large variety of options. Here are the basic factors that you should consider before buying a washing machine:

Front loaders or top loaders
A front loader has an opening for clothes at the front of the unit and utilizes less water and soap. The top loader on the other hand, has minimal water spillage due to its vertical loading system for the laundry.

While top loaders are very popular in North America, front loaders such as those from AEG or the more popular Tricity Bendix washing machines sell pretty well across Europe, as they are best for homes with limited floor areas.

Energy rating and water factor
While you may be gravitating towards choosing cheap washing machines, they will not necessarily be energy and water efficient. Typically, energy-efficient machines can save you anywhere from 36% - 50 % on electricity and use up to 60% less water per wash cycle.

Extra Features
Popular washing machines UK reviews firmly place more value on the features that come with the machine. Check if it has a programmable wash cycle, as it provides you with more options for cleaning cycles. A fabric and detergent dispenser is a much-needed feature as it leads to less wastage of the cleaning or softening agent.

Spare p-art availability
On the other hand, the reason why certain models sell more than others mainly comes down the availability of washing machine parts. For example, Hotpoint washing machines or AEG washing machines have great resale value owing to the ready availability of their spare parts.

Ask yourself what type of washing machine you want. This will greatly depend upon the area that you can spare for the washer. Further, find out how much laundry needs washing and hence the desired capacity. Other aspects such as noise level, water factor, electricity consumption etc. are also important. Once that is out of the way, you are now ready to look at the washing machines sales section!

Hoover DYN8144DB S21 — 02-2014

This mid-priced washing machine has a good 8kg load capacity, a moderate 1400rpm spin speed and a good range of features. But it's noisy in operation, with a low efficiency rating, and the Hoover...

Beko WMB81241 S21 — 02-2014

The Beko WMB81241 offers a larger than average 8kg load at a very competitive price, but it's not a very efficient washer and has a slow 1200rpm B-class spin. It's available in White, Silver or Black.

Bosch WVH28360GB S21 — 02-2014

This entry-level Bosch washer dryer has a relatively small capacity (7kg washing / 4kg drying), but makes up for this by being one of the quietest and most reliable machines available.
